Building high performing teams: Opportunities and challenges of inclusive recruitment practices.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Healthcare is most effectively delivered by high-performance teams, which require, not simply talent, but also diversity in their members, supported by a culture of equity that is open, supportive, and inclusive. Cognitive diversity offers a performance advantage, improving collective understanding and optimizing high-complexity problem solving. Diverse teams have been shown to outperform homogenous team, and this diversity, supplemented with equity and inclusion, yields a superior creative culture. High-performance teams rest on a foundation of standardized and inclusive recruitment practices. Standard recruitment procedures have been insufficient in broadening representation owing to the long-standing inequities and exclusion in medicine. As such, we have highlighted the opportunities for inclusive recruitment practices.
